Robert Gonzales has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is the founder of the Center for Living Compassion. He has been offering Nonviolent Communication, developed by Marshall Rosenberg, for nearly 30 years, using an evolutionary approach that emphasizes practicing deep compassion for oneself and in all our relationships.
Relax the need to improve yourself, create a space for being who you are, and embrace what is!
Robert is internationally known for his seminal integration of Nonviolent Communication and spirituality. His work in “Living Compassion” can support your ability to live a life grounded in your inherent beauty and wholeness. Robert will cover the foundational practice of cultivating and dwelling in what he calls “the Beauty of Needs,” the energetic qualities of the heart that manifest as longings. You’ll discover techniques for relaxing into these needs and developing awareness of the present moment and be introduced to practices for developing self-compassion and tools for coming to your inner experience with complete allowing. Instead of running away from fear or pain or trying to fix it or get over it, you’ll hold it softly and begin to sense the life force that runs through it – then love can arise naturally, and more life can flow. From this center, compassion can emanate from you into all your relationships. In this weekend, you’ll be supported in your capacity to live from your center with authenticity and compassion.
